2003 can't find domain controller

I am adding 2003 server and promoting to DC on a 192.168.101.x network.  While running DCPromo it stops and states it can't fing the Domain Controller.  The other DC is on a 172.16.1.x network.  The message points to a problem with DNS.  How can I get this server to see the other domain controller(s)?  (I also have the error message in detail if needed.)

change the dns settings on the new server you are trying to promote to match the clients of the domain. This typically means putting in the ip of the current domain controller as the dns server. Assuming that you have a router between the two networks (192.168.101/16 and 172.16.1/24) and they can talk to each other, that should work.
